It has been a while in the making, but it is finally here! In partnership with MindScaling, we are thrilled to announce the release of my new eLearning course. This is a highly graphical and interactive course that will engage people from the start. There are activities, assessments, and animations. We even provide downloads and cheat sheets that allow you to use the materials with your team when you are away from the computer. And it has been getting RAVE reviews!
For those of you Luddites who have not yet heard of Uber, it is a technology platform that allows you to request a ride from an individual who will then pick you up in his or her personal car. It is like a taxi, only better. I use Uber all of the time. The cost is half the price of a taxi. The cars are in better condition than the typical yellow cab. The drivers are actually friendly. I can rate the drivers (and see their rating) so the duds get weeded out.
Once upon a time, Paula Deen was a monarch of food-based TV shows. Until her good-name and brand took a colossal blow for making racist comments. Virtually immediately, her fierce and trendy program got removed from TV. Her single possible choice to get back into broadcasting was to get the complete copyrights to her Food Network seasons and start an online TV network, anticipating to fix her status. In 2001, Arthur Andersen was among the biggest professional services conglomerates on Earth.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
